In Our Feeds: literary board games, memorization, and a space shuttle
By Kristen on January 25th, 2013
Each Friday, we share a handful of links we found interesting, provocative, funny — or just plain cool. We call it In Our Feeds. Have a good weekend!
It’s been a chilly week here in the Northeast! It’s just about time to settle in with a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate and check out some fun and interesting links that we found in our feeds this week!
Megan shared this interesting article from The New Yorker on the importance of memorization (remember when we used to memorize poems in school?). She also sent this funny look at the top 10 most popular tags on Instagram.
Dante shares this hilarious roundup of 10 Literary Board Games for Book Nerds. Dibs on “The Little Prince Protects His Planet” — for some reason, “1984: Animal Farm” doesn’t seem quite as, um, lighthearted.
Morgan entertained my Francophile side with this funny article about the French government replacing the term”hashtag” on Twitter with a French alternative. She also shared an interesting piece on the top 10 skills children learn from the arts — should our focus on STEM turn into a focus on STEAM?
Finally, I leave you with a piece of news about the Enterprise space shuttle! The Intrepid Air & Space Museum in New York (where the shuttle is currently on display) is crowdsourcing photos of the shuttle over the years to feature in a gallery in the rebuilt Shuttle Pavilion that was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy. If you have any photos of the shuttle over the years, you can share them on the site!
